    Will the NF7-S2 support an Athlon XP 3200 400? If not, what's the highest I
    can go? Also, current PSU is a 340w. Is this enough? Or should i upgrade to
    a 550? I'm using a Thermaltake Volcano 11 + fan which keeps my current 1900
    at about 58.0c under load.

    I'll need to upgrade the PSU at some point to get the x800 vid card, but if
    possible, I'd rather do the cpu first.

    Yes it will support any desktop Socket A cpu including the XP3200+. If it's
    a decent quality then 340W should be enough providing you don't have too
    much hardware in there. I've built several XP2500+ @ 3200+ systems using
    generic no-name 350W PSU's and they were all fine, one even coped with a
    Radeon 9800XT without problem.

    Great thanks. I'll have to check out who the psu is made by, but i think its
    just a stock no name that came with the case.

    Just so long as you realise that the NF7-S2 & NF7-S V2.0 are 2 boards with
    confusingly similar names but somewhat different features.

    Right, of course. Now that you pointed that out, I have the NF7-S V2.0. I
    know the 2.0 supports 400, but is the 3200 ok on this one?

    Sorry for the confusion.
